Cat Update

CAT UPDATE….I continue to betray my cats’ trust. Today I stuffed Jasmine into a box, drove her to that strange antiseptic room she hates so much, and then paid some people to stick needles into her. She’s not happy about it, although she seems to have forgiven me.

She also has a fairly strong heart murmur. There’s not really anything we can do about it, and that being the case I sort of wish they hadn’t even told me. Why worry over something that you can’t change?

And don’t anybody tell Inkblot, but he’s next. The only difference is that he gets a bigger box.
